This creamy carrot cashew sauce with roasted broccoli is a healthy substitute that will fill those cheesy potato cravings. Serve it like you would any traditional cheese sauce over a baked potato or as a sauce for potato gratin or whole-grain pasta, or try serving it fondue-style accompanied by your favorite veggies, crackers, pickles or whole-grain crusty bread for dipping.
Make a homemade dip that doubles as a dressing to enjoy with sliced raw veggies and prepared leafy greens. Try this Creamy Dill & Cannellini Bean Dip with radishes, cucumbers and carrots or toss it with romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, red onion, cherry tomatoes and roasted fingerling potatoes for an easy lunch.
Turkey bacon adds a salty, savory quality to this chicken cannelloni with Asiago and mozzarella cheeses and a creamy béchamel sauce.

Rich ricotta- and chicken-stuffed individual rolls make for a delicious dinner, or an easily transportable lunch. Frozen spinach can be quite watery once thawed, so drain it well and squeeze out any excess water before using. For faster prep, poach and shred the chicken breasts up to 2 days ahead and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to make the rolls.
Eggs and arrowroot starch help hold these California-fresh patties together, while quinoa, scallions, lemon zest and dill give them flavor and a nutrition boost. If desired, set aside a few tablespoons of the homemade dressing to use as a dipping sauce or drizzle over the patties.
